How we make a Difference
Northern Health Foundation raises funds to provide Northern Health with state-of-the art medical equipment which will improve patient care and comfort across our health service here in the North. Over the last 18 months we have funded more than $800,000 in medical equipment and research across our four campuses. All focused on improving patient care and comfort now and into the future.
Following we share patient stories and the projects that have been funded over the last two years.
Northern Health Foundation Defibrillator Appeal
Northern Health Foundation together with our donors, business partners, local businesses and the community have helped raise over $300,000 to purchase defibrillators for Northern Health. Defibrillators save lives and it is important they are readily accessible across our health service.
Umit Kursat and his wife Tulay discovered first hand that a cardiac arrest can happen anytime and without warning. Umit’s life was saved because there was a defibrillator on-hand. Hear their story below:
